Deadwood Wrap-Up Movie: It's Finally (Maybe) Happening

For f–k’s sake, it better happen this time!

Deadwood, the Western drama that HBO cancelled in 2006, might soon get a satisfying conclusion: Sources confirm to TVLine that talks between the network and series creator David Milch have indeed resumed.

The project — which likely will take the form of a movie — had been rumored for some time; in 2014, star Kim Dickens told Michael Ausiello that a continuation was a “possibility.” (See video below.)

Following the show’s abrupt cancellation after three seasons, HBO announced plans to produce two two-hour wrap-up movies, but the project eventually died on the vine.

Garret Dillahunt, who played Francis Wolcott and Jack McCall on the beloved series, tweeted some encouraging news Wednesday evening:

When asked for comment, an HBO rep said, “In reference to Garret Dillahunt’s tweet regarding the rumored Deadwood movie, there have only been very preliminary conversations.”

  10. dee123 says:

    Part of me would love it, part of me would love some of the more crucial actors to tell HBO to go f**k themselves.

  11. GhostofMags says:

    Oh, please, yes!

  15. jim bob says:

    i sure hope this is true. this series needs a ending, we were just talking about how we loved the show and how it just stopped.

  16. MMD says:

    This HAD better happen. I still think it was the best show I ever watched. It’s the very least that HBO owes the fans and David Milch after its abrupt cancellation. It was so nice to see so many of the actors appear on Justified, even if it was just a cameo.

    • Kathryn Wells says:

      I loved the “Justified” cameos too. Currently rewatching “Deadwood” for the 4th time. Best show ever. Would love an ending.

  17. LABete says:

    HBO, please make this happen! Meanwhile, it looks like finally Al and Trixie will once again share a tense scene in next week’s Ray Donovan.

    Anyone still care at this late date?
    Sounds like some guys have bills to pay….

  20. Kari says:

    Fingers crossed it happen this time!!!!

  21. Brian says:

    I’m currently sitting 40 feet from where Wild Bill Hickok got shot. 12:27 AM 8-14
    The show must be finished! There is so much history here, the final story must be told!
    This is the real deal! And, so was the show!

  22. Craig says:

    How about we all cancel our HBO programming from our TV providers and leave HBO hanging until they get their heads out of their asses and finish the damn series. This is absurd to leave viewers hanging. Their problem is not ours. We just want an ending, not a hanging. Pun intended. Viewers are customers and the customer is always right. Yeah right !

  23. Renaud says:

    Please God let us get closure with one (or two!) movies, it would be so great! This TV series was near perfect, I am French and I know a great deal of people around me who would die for another season of the series or for a movie. Please HBO don’t let this gigantic TV series die this way, in the middle of nothing! The cast is incredible, it was delicious to watch each episode.

    hated deadwood just stopped with no ending.finishing this show would be great.
